Sopa de Pollo Con Fideos

Sopa de Pollo Con Fideos

The temperature here this morning had dropped to a rather nippy 11 degrees centigrade. OK, so it's not minus something that most of you will be experiencing in the northern hemisphere, but when you have had temperatures of 40 something centigrade in summer, relatively, this is four woolly weather. Therefore, it is time for a nice warming soup.

You may think there is nothing that remarkable about Sopa de Pollo Con Fideos, which English speakers will already know as Chicken Noodle Soup, but this is probably one of the most popular soups here. To me, it is a sin to buy those awful packets of dried chemicals pretending to be something edible, when this is much nicer, almost as quick, probably cheaper and certainly healthier using all natural ingredients.

Ingredients:

One chicken drumstick or thigh
One chicken stock cube (optional)
A few mixed herbs
(Vegetables, such as onion and carrot, optional.)
One litre (2.2 English pints) of water
A handful / tablespoon of thin noodles

Method:

Place all the ingredients, except the pasta, into a saucepan. Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer slowly for about 30 minutes (give or take) until the chicken is ready to fall off the bone and has infused it's flavour into the stock.

Remove the drumstick from the stock and remove the meat from the bone, shredding finely. Place the meat back into the saucepan with the stock. Add the pasta and simmer for approx. 5 minutes more, until the pasta is done.

Season to taste and serve with crusty bread. Serves four.
